Talk about unlikely animal friends, Addie and Rosie are serving us the unexpected. Addie is just a small dog enjoying the company of an…Opossum? Opossum’s are rarely seen indoors but oftentimes make the greatest companions, and Addie can certainly attest to that. Whether it’s hiking in forests or snoozing beside each other, these two offer each other so much comfort and companionship.
Just when you thought you’ve seen it all, Addie and Rosie come to the internet to melt hearts as they play, inspect each other’s ear canals, and even sniff each other’s butts. These two are so close, they do a big morning stretch before they start their adventurous day!
Pugs are already cute enough, with their squishy faces and funny personalities, one might think they are maxed out on cute meter. Sia the pug and her animal friends take it to the next level. Her and her farm friends will have you wishing to be a part of their crew. Sia is a pretty active dog, so her crew may seem unlikely but they sure know how to keep up!
Sia doesn’t discriminate based on species. She loves playing with her chicken siblings and snuggling with her fluffy bunnies. This girl can’t get enough of her farm friends and the ducklings she thinks are hers. Just look at this adorable video of Sia watching over her ducklings.
Have you ever seen a unicorn? How about a unicorn with a dog companion? You’re in for a real treat. Harry the real unicorn loves his humans, but what he loves more is his sister Echo. Harry loves to play dress up and bring joy from his unicorn horn. He loves it so much that Echo decided she too is magical and joins Harry in granting smiles with her fairy wings. This relationship is so magical, it’ll leave your stomach filled with pixie dust.
These two can be seen running, snuggling, and keeping the children who come to visit their home entertained. This duo can be seen flying together and rolling in grass – something everyone should see! Check out Echo teaching Harry how to roll around in grass!
These forever friends have taught us that friendships can be found in the most unlikely of places. Regardless of species, animals will not always get along. They need to be comfortable and their feelings should be respected.
The saying goes, you can’t judge a book by it’s cover and these animals are great examples of that. Amazing things that can happen when we overcome discrimination and reach out a hand (or a paw) to our neighbor!
